Joy Kelso first came to The Bray as a photography intern for a class at Carroll College after her time in the U.S. Army as a Combat Medic. After falling in love with pottery in the summer of 2020, she started work at The Bray Clay Business to learn more. She now adds ceramic work to her repertoire as Master Chandler at The Candle Shoppe in Helena, MT and teaches local art classes.
Cole Collier received his BA in Art with an emphasis in Ceramics from the University of Southern Indiana. With a diverse background in technology, education and ceramics, he currently works in multiple capacities across The Bray. His love of all things clay began in the kitchen and in his work continues to explore the connections between utilitarian tableware and the rituals that surround the preparation and presentation of a shared meal.
